Tertiary Education and Research (Wales) Act 2022

Section 145: Power to provide for the Open University to be treated as a tertiary education provider in Wales

448.This section allows the Welsh Ministers to make regulations to apply the provisions under this Act to the Open University. The Open University does not fall within the definition of “tertiary education provider in Wales” because its activities do not take place “wholly or mainly in Wales”. This power in this section will allow the Welsh Ministers to treat the Open University as a tertiary education provider in Wales. This may be to apply the registration conditions; learner protection plans and other provisions to the Open University in order to ensure funding and protection for learners in Wales undertaking courses of study with the Open University.
